We found this place by chance. The staff is friendly, the food very tasty and the setting very different from any other place we visited on this trip. The bar area is nothing special but the restaurant is setup like a patio with a garden feel. Romantic place in the evening.

This is a great place for brunch or dinner. We live in New York for 7 years and the last 4 years in Williamsburg and this is one of our favorite places. The food is excellent and the setting cozy but spacious enough for larger groups and strollers if you have a baby. The prices are low, especially in comparison... More

Excellent generous size pizzas made to order (including customisation) with friendly efficient service - and only 10 dollars each at lunchtime. Dining area more like rural Italy than Brooklyn - shaded by real vines.

Last Sunday I was wandering around Williamsburg with my friend and by chance we noticed this cute place: the colors, the plants and flowers and the smiles of the two waiters soon convinced us to stop by. The appetizer we had was tasty and the pizza was a real pizza, well cooked; the wine and the atmosphere brought me literally... More

We had a such a good experience one year ago. This week, it was a very bad service. After burning my daughter with a candle, the food was average and took almost one hour to be serveed. They didn't offer a drink or something for the burning incident and they did a mistake with the bill and run after us... More

Walked by but back to it as it has a winsome ambience, perfect day in Brooklyn. Welcomed immediately and sat a nice table with white table cloth and napkin. The grapevine ceiling made us feel like we were in a vineyard in Italy. Great menu, started with the tone lo appetizer with rolled beef. The salad beneath was perfect, arugula,... More

I walked in with a friend for lunch randomly into this place. We were deciding which place to go into for a quick bite. I had absolutely no idea that the food would be so tasty. We ordered two different pasta dishes and we both loved what we got. I tasted his food and he tasted mine and we couldn't... More

On a hot, humid day walking through Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, I saw this place from across the street and it looked so cool and inviting that I just had to go over and check it out. The open atrium is shaded by live grapevines and surrounded by planted greenery. Delicious Italian fare and a lovely waitstaff. Great find!

Our group of five arrived about 11:45 on a Sunday morning to an almost empty restaurant. The pizza was even better than I had in Naples, Italy! The assorted meat plate and calzone were also excellent. Our two servers were attentive and so enjoyable which really enhanced our experience. By the time we had finished eating the restaurant was completely... More
